Besson Says No To Leon 2
Acclaimed French film-maker LUC BESSON has ruled out a sequel to hit movie LEON in a bid to end the countless script offers he's received. The director has been flooded with possible follow-ups to the 1994 smash starring JEAN RENO and a young NATALIE PORTMAN but insists they've only served to put him off the project for good. He says, "No, I don't think so. "People say 'Oh, I've written the sequel - here! I'll send you the script.' And I basically send a lawyer and say 'F*** you! It's not yours'. It's not love. It's stealing. These guys are just thieves that's all. "If we do a sequel, I will write the sequel. I don't need anyone."
